Cackle Fest

The Cackle fest is a festival designed to mark the Golden Age of Drag Racing. In simple terms, repaired and precision-creating engines, an era-correct car or truck is pushed. The racing cars are lined up in a selected position before the spectators after the motors start and left running in an idle movement to make the nitro-powered engine’s distinctive sound. In 2000 it was organized with a nine-car show by NHRA Motorsports Museum. Since then, the museum has been proud and thankful for the nostalgic look at early drag races for the elderly fans and an educational and thrilling occasion that scores of Top Fuel draggers now offer.


In 2008, the NHRA Museum launched the Hot Rod Heritage Series to support Nostalgia drag racing and had races throughout the United States with most points on the Western Coast. The push aspect of Cackle fest begins with flames fired from the zoom and nitro’s scent in the air. The Famoso Raceway March Meeting is California’s largest sporting event every March. In Marion, Ohio, Marion County has the most extensive collection of funny old school cars blown with Our Lady Nationals of funny vehicles in August last year.
